Some media outlets have tried to claim there was a scandal over the Conservative Party paying for part of the tuition for his kids to attend a private Catholic school in Ottawa. Several party officials, including some not keen on Scheer, dismissed that story.
As for claims that Scheer resigned over the contents of the election review being conducted by former cabinet minister John Baird, that report has yet to be written never mind filed with the party. Baird told me that his review process continues.
Scheer is leaving his post as leader on his own terms, despite the claims and efforts of his many high-profile detractors. While he may not have won the big prize, he served his party well, he improved their standing in seats and in fundraising, and he leaves with a record to be proud of.
